The French team of Roland Berger has in recent months strengthened its partner team with two partners. Thierry Duvette joined from AlixPartners and is a senior partner in the firm’s Aeronautics & Defence practice, while former BearingPoint and PwC consultant Cyrille Vincey has been appointed a partner in charge of Roland Berger’s Data Analytics & Artificial Intelligence offering.

Based in Paris, Roland Berger France has a team of around 300 partners and consultants, which makes France the firm’s second most important market after their home base of Germany. 

Thierry Duvette previously served consulting rival AlixPartners, where he served as a partner since 2012 and was part of the firm’s EMEA Aerospace & Defence practice. Prior to joining the consulting firm in 2007, he worked twenty years for Dassault Aviation, a manufacturer of combat aircraft and business jets.

At Roland Berger, Duvette co-leads its global Aerospace & Defence arm, as well as its Industrial Goods & Services, Performance Improvement and Restructuring practices in France. He brings more than 30 years of experience as an industry executive and a consultant to the firm, with his functional expertise spanning corporate transformation and restructuring, engineering, programme management, procurement, organisation design, process optimisation and revenue growth.

Duvette graduated from Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Techniques Avancées and hold an MBA from HEC, a Paris based business school.

Cyrille Vincey has been named a partner and is responsible for the firm’s Data Analytics & Artificial Intelligence offering. Vincey and Roland Berger are familiar with one another – Vincey is a member of Numa's board of directors, and in the role he has over the past two years engaged with several Roland Berger partners and consultants. The consultancy agreed a strategic partnership in October 2015 with Numa, since the two have worked together to help start-ups and scale-ups with (international) growth and monetisation.*

Prior to that, Vincey founded his own data analysis start-up, Qunb, which was acquired by Ve Interactive at the end of 2014. Vincey remained nearly three years with the e-commerce and digital player in the role of Chief Data Officer. Before his entrepreneurial endeavours, the Paris Dauphine University graduate launched two other businesses and worked with three consulting firms: BearingPoint, Arthur Andersen Consulting (today Accenture) and PwC. 

“Since I started discussing with the Roland Berger partners team, I have been dazzled by the entrepreneurial mindset that prevails internally. I'm now very proud to be a part of it. Leveraging data and digital, we will aim to help clients rapidly deliver prototypes and tangible proofs of concepts, in order to help customers make informed decision at light speed based on facts, not fantasies,” Vincey stated in a post on LinkedIn.

Currently, Roland Berger’s Data Analytics & Artificial Intelligence in France boasts a team of around ten consultants. The practise works closely together with Terra Numerata, a pan-European digital platform and community the consultancy created in 2014 to promote and build an ecosystem of start-ups and digital solutions.

Paris leadership

Roland Berger Paris is led by two co-Managing Partners: Olivier de Panafieu, a former consultant at A.T. Kearney, and Anne Bioulac, a former advisor at Oliver Wyman. Both have been with Roland Berger for over a decade. Globally, the management consulting firm has 2,400 professionals and is led by the Frenchman Charles-Édouard Bouée – the firm’s first non-German chief executive since being founded in 1967. 

* Roland Berger also works closely with the German private incubator Rocket Internet and has a joint venture with the Portuguese Start-up Lisboa.
